If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
AI technology has grown in leaps and bounds over the past few years, and one of its main implementations is internet search engines. From correcting misspelled words to predicting what a user wants to search for, AI has made searching the web so much easier. Google is the leader when it comes to the sheer volume of search queries that it handles. Naturally, it has implemented an AI-based algorithm that helps improve your search experience. Exactly how does AI do this?
When you deploy intelligent search in your organization, two important factors to consider are access to the latest and most comprehensive information, and a contextual discovery mechanism. Many companies are still struggling to make their internal documents searchable in a way that allows employees to get relevant information knowledge in a scalable, cost-effective manner. A 2018 International Data Corporation (IDC) study found that data professionals are losing 50% of their time every week--30% searching for, governing, and preparing data, plus 20% duplicating work. Amazon Kendra is purpose-built for addressing these challenges. Amazon Kendra is an intelligent search service that uses deep learning and reading comprehension to deliver more accurate search results.
Get the day's biggest stories sent direct to your inbox so you never miss a thing Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a staple of our daily lives, from Siri to Google Assistant which can control our phones, computers and even homes. The world of media has explored the advancement and potential dangers of rapidly advancing AI for decades, films such as Blade Runner and 2001: A Space Odyssey have touched on the themes of what happens when AI grows beyond human control. But how much does this affect our perception of AI and its involvement in our daily lives? Using data from Google Search Trends and Linkfluence, new research from Ebuyer has revealed that globally almost 3 million people had searched negative themes around AI online. The research discovered that the biggest search queries included "Can artificial intelligence be dangerous?"
The user starts by entering a search query to find a background image, like "apple pie". The system then checks for matching images in Wikimedia Commons  and the OpenImages dataset . Both datasets have corresponding text descriptions of the images. I use the CLIP  encoders from OpenAI to first perform a semantic search on the text descriptions. A semantic search looks for matching concepts, not just a word search.
A reverse image search is a technique that allows finding things, people, brands, etc. using a photo. While performing a regular search you usually type a word or phrase that is related to the information you are trying to find; when you do a reverse image search, you upload a picture to a search engine. In the results of regular searches, you receive a list of websites that are connected to these phrases. When you perform a reverse image search, in the results you receive photos of similar things, people, etc, linked to websites about them. Reverse search by image is the best solution to use when looking for similar images, smaller/bigger versions of them, or twin content.
SEO.co, a search engine optimization (SEO) agency, in collaboration with DEV.co, a custom software development company, has launched AI.DEV.co, a tool that makes it easier for businesses and individuals to generate web copy. Businesses of all sizes and in all industries face a similar dilemma online: getting attention and standing out. Most brands use a combination of different marketing and advertising strategies to get this attention and differentiate themselves from their competitors. For a campaign to succeed, it needs a set of compelling, unique copy – persuasive writing that concisely makes a point and motivates a web user to take an action (such as clicking a link, buying a product, or watching a video). Generating copy is challenging for several reasons, even if one is experienced in the field.

There are many predictions about connected and autonomous vehicles, some of them suggesting that fully autonomous, levels 4 and 5 vehicles will begin to become commonplace on public roads from 2025. A study by Vynz Research says the global connected and autonomous vehicle market size was 17.7 million units in 2019; and it predicts that this will reach 51.2 million units by 2025 – a compound growth rate of 17.1% during the period of 2020 to 2025.At present, most vehicles aren't fully autonomous, yet still increasingly rely upon data to operate. With their emergence will be a growth in data. Rich Miller writes in his article for Data Center Frontier, 'Rolling Zettabytes: Quantifying the Data Impact of Connected Cars': "The Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC) is working to help stakeholders understand the infrastructure requirements for connected cars. At Edge Computing World, AECC board member, Vish Nandlall, outlined the group's findings on the volume of data created by autonomous cars and the challenges they will create."
The man behind the Google Search curtain is coming out to explain a few things. On Thursday, Google expanded the information that it attaches to search results to show users why they're getting the website recommendations they receive. This includes the "matching keywords" and "related terms" associated with your search that show up in the result, as well as whether other pages reference that link, and if it makes sense for your local area. Google doesn't make a secret of the factors that go into its search rank algorithm -- it spells everything out here. But showing how it applies that criteria to your specific query gives users a new, practical look under the Google hood.
